Need help explaing values in the "list configuration all" screenHelpful Member!(2)

Hello,
I'm doing some programming against a G350/S8300.  And I could really use some help with understanding the Assigned Ports values in the "list configuration screen" and why one value shows up over another.

Specifically I'm trying to figure out what makes a port contain a value of PSA('p') or TTI('t').  Is it based on the media module?  A system setting?

This is a snippet of what I'm looking at on our lab machine:

CODE

Board# BrdType  Code    Vintage         Assigned Ports
001V2  DS1 MM   MM710AP HW05 FW018 u  u  u  u  u  u  u  u
                                   u  u  u  u  u  u  u  u
                                   u  u  u  u  u  u  u  u
                                   u  u  u  u  u  u  u  u
001V3  ANA MM   MM714AP HW10 FW088 01 02 03 04 u  u  u  u
001V5  DCP MM   MM712AP HW04 FW008 01 p  p  p  p  p  p  p
001V7  ANA IMM 1T2LIMAP HW06 FW088 u  02 p

Also I haven't had success in assigning a station to an unassigned port ('u') but it should be possible correct?

Thanks,
njm

p or t = psa/tti port, it has dial tone and you can connect an analog/digital phone (depending on the port type) and log a phone in.  Doesn't really mater what the difference is between p/t, they both function the same way (have dial tone)

u = unassigned or TTI is disabled

Thanks Mitch for the reply.  What I'm really needing to understand though is how to predict what the port will be when it no longer has an assignment.  Will it be a p, t, or u?  And to know that I need to figure out why a port is given the designation of a p, t, or u in the first place.  Thanks,

I think that it depends on (a) what type of board it is, and (2) if you have tti/psa turned off or on.

Boards that don't support phones will always show "u" (for unassigned).

Boards that do support phones will either show show a "u" if you don't have tti or psa turned on, or they will show a "p" if tti/psa is turned on.

Thanks Susan!  Do you know the setting to turn tti/psa on and off?  And do you know of a hypothetical situation where a 't' would display instead of a 'p'?

Thanks,

"change system features"

Depending on what your release is, depends on what page the field is on:

"Terminal Translation Initialization (TT) Enabled?"

PSA is "Customer Telephone Activate(CTA) Enabled?"

Sorry to beat a dead horse, just want to make sure I've got this correct.

If "Terminal Translation (TTI) Enabled?" is 'y'
and "Customer Telephone Activation(CTA) Enabled" is 'n'
then an unassigned port will display a 't'.

If "Terminal Translation (TTI) Enabled?" is 'y'
and "Customer Telephone Activation(CTA) Enabled" is 'y'
then an unassigned port will display a 'p'.

If "Terminal Translation (TTI) Enabled?" is 'n'
requiring "Customer Telephone Activation(CTA) Enabled" to be 'n'
then an unassigned port will display a 'u'.

All depending of course on whether the board supports phones.  That look about right?

I appreciate the help!

boards that do not support station ports will show "u" when the ports are not assigned.

boards that support station ports show "u" when unassinged and tti / psa is turned off. marked ports will always show "u" (Command: list mark) (Command: clear port xxyyzz)

boards that support station ports other than "bri" will
show "p" when unassigned and tti / psa is turned on and
Personal Station Access (PSA)? y on "display system customer" - "bri" ports when tti / psa is on will show "t"

boards that support station ports will show "t" when unassigned if Personal Station Access (PSA)? n on "display system customer" when tti / psa is turned on

A port on any board that shows "m" is most likely corrupted
(Command: display port xxyyzz) will return "Error Encountered, Cannot Complete Request"

When you say "tti/psa is turned on/off", what setting are you referring to here?

Putting what you said into pseudo-code and for boards that only support station ports...

If tti/psa is turned off
then an unassigned port will be 'u'

If tti/psa is turned on
and Personal Station Access (PSA)? is set to 'y'
and is not a 'bri' port
then an unassigned port will be 'p'

If tti/psa is turned on
and Personal Station Access (PSA)? is set to 'y'
and is a 'bri' port
then an unassigned port will be 't'

If tti/psa is turned on
and Personal Station Access (PSA)? is set to 'n'
then an unassigned port will be 't'

If port is corrupt
then a port will be 'm'

Look about right?  Thanks for help.

status tti will tell you if tti mode is voice or data and on or off

you can change this status by doing "change system features"

The rest looks right.
